WHAT IS SULONG PILIPINAS?
Sulong Pilipinas is the annual consultative conference between the Duterte administration and various citizen groups. Since 2016, Sulong Pilipinas has been the platform for the government to consult stakeholders on socioeconomic priorities. Based on a 21st century town hall concept, the Sulong Pilipinas consultative workshops enable constructive and lively discussions between the participants, which would bring out the sharpest and most tractable ideas. Instead of experts leading the conversations throughout, they only provide technical inputs upfront and then serve as resource persons as the participants discuss proposals among themselves. A small technical team then summarizes and packages the information into the top actionable recommendations for the government, which are then presented to the President or his representative at the end of the workshop.
ACHIEVEMENTS FROM SULONG PILIPINAS
The Comprehensive Tax Reform Program (CTRP) is needed to accelerate poverty reduction and to sustainably address inequality, in order to attain the President’s promise of tunay na pagbabago. By making the tax system simpler, fairer, and more efficient, additional – and a more sustainable stream of – revenues will be generated to make meaningful investments in our people and infrastructure, which will help achieve our vision for the Philippines.
EASE OF DOING BUSINESS
Ease of Doing Business (EODB) Act of 2018 aims to reduce red tape significantly in government transactions and be more responsive to the needs of entrepreneurs.
The National ID system is one of the programs mandated with the enactment of TRAIN Law. National ID will help prompt implementation of government programs by helping identify Filipinos in need of certain services.
